Hands on and full of heart
16 June 2018 | by techpressSee all my reviews

Another homebuilding series focusing strictly on the objects of design and nothing about the people who invest and labor on it? These home projects are carefully curated process tracks, spanning years. They're about real people and most with limited funds. Without their dramatic stakes revealed in each episode, you have but a nice glossy Architectural Record on TV. I couldn't watch it. Space without people interacting with it is meaningless to a lot of us!

And here they're not all brutalist modern/ Scandinavian plank designs-- although my personal taste runs to that look-- where walls and furniture provide their own function yet can be a tabula rasa for bespoke decoration, if any! No, many of the episodes I've seen reveal some way-out structures that would show up in National Geographic - don't want to give anything away here-- but it doesn't get much more diverse. These process shows are a real eyeful, with a perfect balance of visioned people, old and new tech, and the built environment.

If Kevin and crew shows up for a USA tour and are looking for a good editor-- sign me up! I live for this stuff. That's how I feel about this distinctive series.

Thanks to Netflix for the four seasons I've binged thus far-- I realize this series goes back 20 years.
